Williams turned a medium gain into a 76-yard touchdown late in the second quarter thanks in part to poor tackling and poor angles taken by the defense. His second score was grabbed in the back of the end zone on third-and-goal from the eight-yard line, giving the Cowboys their first lead of the game with less than three minutes remaining in the final quarter.
Williams was targeted six times in a game where the Lions did their best to take away No. 1 receiver
The Cowboys have a date with the Packers set for Sunday in Green Bay.
He finished with two catches on three targets for 29 yards. Beasley visits Washington in Week 17.
Beasley nearly had scores on all three of his targets, but he was stonewalled on a short pass early in the second quarter before DeMarco Murray plunged into the end zone on the next play. Beasley caught his first touchdown of the season in Week 12 before tripling his scoring total Thursday. He's managed 149 of his 292 receiving yards and all three of his touchdowns in the last three weeks. Beasley will look to keep rolling in Week 15 against the Eagles.
He'll visit the Bears next Thursday.
Beasley caught a short pass in the third quarter and made a few men miss en route to a 45-yard score on his first target of the night. The yardage was a season high for the rarely-targeted player, and the touchdown was his first of the season. Beasley now has 18 catches for 209 yards while seeing targets in 10 of the team's 11 games.
